HC Deb 07 March 1944 vol 397 c1873
55. Sir H. Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, having regard to the new financial commitments incurred since the outbreak of war, he will consider the publication of a future normal Budget, similar to that issued by his predecessor a quarter of a century ago, so that the House and the country may be able to consider objectively any future legislation involving large expenditure.

Sir J. Anderson

At an appropriate time I shall be glad to give the House all the estimates I can of our probable revenue and expenditure after the war. At the moment it would be premature for me to attempt to do so.
